Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a honda civic 09 and just today i bumped into the car and the alarm did not go off nor did it go off when i tried opening the door even though it was locked. But i had remembered once i locked myself in the car not realizing the car was locked and tried opeing the door and the alarm came on and i had to put the key in for the alarm to turn off. I was wondering if i had an alarm? I see a red light flashing. If i have an alarm what can i do to make it work

The red light flashing may be the engine immobiliser that works in proximity to the key. Have some one check the alarm system

SOURCE: Car Alarm

sounds like the drivers side key switch has failed remove the interior door panel and there will be a switch attached to the back of the key lock cylinder or around there it should be two or three wires also check the door jamb wire harness where the door closes for any broken or damaged wires, use a vot meter and see if you get power or ground to the opposite side of the switch when you use the key to lock and unlock the door if nothing changes and there is power or ground! at this switch i would replace it, i don't think there is one but if the car has a passenger side key hole try to unlock the car from that side and see if you get the same problem -jeff

If there is nothing jammed in the barrel, you will need to pull apart the lining of the interior of the door, disconnect the power motor for that switch, then see if it locks by key, sounds like the motor is seized, of out of allignment, easily fixed with a second hand or reco motor, or witha simple adjustment. Good luck, hope it helps.

SOURCE: Alarm haywire, can't override anti-theft system or turn on car

The Alarm on my Mercedes ML320 sounded every night, then it started doing it more often, Showed it to the dealer he says it's the 'Tow Sensor', that needs to be repaced. $700, down the drain. I have already started hating this car, it eats $500-600, every 6 months...

Usually when you change a Fob battery you have to re-sync it to the car. Some cars have you lock and unlock the drivers door with the key.
Should be in your owner's manual.

How do I turn off the car alarm? There's nothing in the manual. (2004 civic hybrid)


Unlock the drivers door twice. The other doors have to be closed and if their not electrically closed it'll still not reset. Double lock the drivers door with the key all the doors should lock.. The alarm should stop. Unlock the drivers door and then get inthe car and start it soon. the sysstem should go though a full reset and it should be normal again.

Lost remote to alarm on 1996 honda civic need to change battery


I had this happen today and called an alarm installer. he said to connect the battery cable (id unhooked it to stop the blaring) then open the door to set off the alarm. then torn on the key ( even tho it wont start the car , turn it on anyway) then look for a toggle switch ( AKA a valet switch) with the key in the on position flip the switch. ( when I did this a noticed a tiny red light come on to the left of the steering column) I turned the toggle back to the original position and then I tried to crank -AND IT CRANKED WITH NO SCREAMING ALARM!!! I was so happy, I had to post this in case it could help someone else.
